Gen-X Jurors

* A message to the trial lawyers who watch hours of sitcoms and pay jury consultants in an effort to understand and appeal to jury members in their 20s ("Split Verdict on Gen-X," July 9).

Save that hard-earned cash. Here's some free advice, from a certifiable Gen-Xer:

If I were on a jury and you used "snazzier graphics" because you assumed I "process information" in a "fundamentally different" way (owing, no doubt, to my incoherent, "quirky" and otherwise sophomoric moral relativism), my beleaguered attention span would certainly be distracted by one thought: Your patronizing attitude is, like, beyond infuriating.
